Reading Rainbow was a show that frustrated me as a child. I couldn't stand it, yet usually ended up having to watch taped episodes of RR at my school's extended day program, even though we all had our little fingers crossed for Tiny Toon Adventures instead.
I'm a reader, and I think that's why I didn't like the show. Because it was a television show...about reading books.
Think about it.
Hopefully it instilled the joy of reading in some of its little viewers. I, however, sought that joy from, you know, actual books.
The only thing I took away from RR is what I take away from all television shows--the theme song stuck in my brain for life. So when I got this butterfly sweater from J.Crew on my last shopping trip, I totally sang the RR theme song all day.
And now you can, too. :)
Oh, and some more of Mom's agapanthas (agapanthi?), because I love these things.
